Near Upshi we stop at a check post where you need to submit your permits. For the better part of
today’s journey we follow the Indus River and the tarmac is in good condition for the most part,
barring a few landslide prone stretches…
Chumathang itself has little to offer to a visitor apart from a few local roadside restaurants, a
Gompa and hot water springs. A quick lunch stop would suffice for most, instead we make our own
track, riding off road and following the numerous tracks left by passing vehicles. The last 30kms are
a pain, but a boon for those who love off road riding! The track here is a mix of sand and dirt trails
littered with small stones. However the view one gets at the end of it makes it all worth it, overnight
on the bank of the Tso-mo-riri or Korzok village.

road motor biking!! It is believed that Tso- Kar was once connected to Tso- Mo-riri, even though
TsoKar is a salt water lake while Tso Mo-riri is fresh water… The area surrounding Tso- Kar is
protected and forms the Tso- Kar wild life sanctuary; we will camp here overnight on the banks of
